During selection the opposing team can handicap the other to strategically remove the best characters from the list, putting pressure on their opponents.

What are the best LoL betting markets?
There's a lot to take in when it comes to League of legends betting, so let's break it down a little. First of all, there are in-play betting and outright betting, these two betting markets distribute between in-play and upcoming games. In-play match betting means you bet on a live game, and gives a lot more options for additional bets. Outright bets are placed well before a tournament or match, in which you can preempt who you think will win from the selection of teams playing in those matches. Let's have a look at the individual markets and what they have to offer: Match Odds - this bet is used to predict who you think will be the match winner of the overall game.
Map Handicap - gives a handicap to one of the two teams playing, in an attempt to even your odds.
Map Betting - this bet lets you choose who you think will win each map. There are three maps in total per match, and each one has an individual betting market.
Map Kills - there are a number of bets relating to kills on each map:
First Blood - is used to choose which team will kill a member of the opposite team first, resulting in first blood. First to 10 Champion Kills - is a bet commonly used to predict who you think will reach 10 champion kills first. Total Champion Kills - this allows punters to predict which team will total the highest amount of kills during a single match duration. Champion Kills Handicap - gives a handicap to one of the two teams depending on your preference.
Map Objectives - Similar to map kills, these bets are placed before the beginning of a match and take into account elements of the map and the game's objectives:
First to Kill Baron - predicts which team will be the first to gain a buff by destroying the baron that spawns on the map. Both Teams to Slay Baron - this bet judges whether both teams will kill the baron before the match is over. First to Destroy an Inhibitor - this is based on which team will destroy an inhibitor first. Inhibitors are towers that spawn minions for each team and have high health.
In contrast to the extensive list of in-play bets you can place, outright bets are placed before an event, and usually cater to punters interested in placing a stake on who they think will win a tournament.
